A member asked:

Taking gerd medicine from 2 months but get it again as i skip medicine. new dr. said low stomach acid leads to acid reflux because les only closes with right amount of acid in stomach. ppis and antacids only lead to further problems. what should i do?

I think your new doc is misinformed. The LES can be naturally loose, or closure be impaired by the effect of caffeine/nicotine or other factors. Avoid consuming LES impairing items, don't lay down after meals & take your PPI. Also look for a new doc.
